Thank you, Jim! Definitely always good to see areas that are managed with imperiled species in mind, especially when the management is clearly helping!
Wow!! That is just incredible!!
Northern cricket frog (Acris crepitans) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northern_c...
Thanks, cis! I was amazed by this flower... no idea such a thing existed!
Stunning photos and creatures! What an amazing find! Looks like he is winking at you in that first photo ;)
No problem! Beautiful spotting!! :)
I am not sure what is in the third photo, but it would be great if you could make a separate spotting for the trillium, especially since it is a rare species!
The first photo is definitely a jack-in-the-pulpit. The second photo looks like a snow trillium (Trillium nivale), which is threatened in WI. Below is a resource for the trillium. http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/EndangeredResour...
It is alive, right? Looks like it is playing dead :)
Good call on forget-me-not! There are SO many species in this genus, so I would just go with a Myosotis species!
